Jyoti Aneja

I am a Senior Researcher in the Deep Learning Group at Microsoft Research, Redmond.

I graduated with a PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I worked with Alex Schwing and also collaborated with David Forsyth.

My research interests lie at the intersection of Computer Vision, Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing.

In my (not so) past life, I was a physicist. I have a MS in Physics from UIUC.
